KeywordsAcari Demodex canis general morphology external anatomy scanning electron microscopy
Scanning electron micrography was performed on freshly isolated adult Demodex canis mites. The mites remained alive and their bodies intact for 3-5 minutes in the vacuum of the scanning electron microscope. Structures of the mouth parts, legs, male reproductive organ, female genital opening and whole body cuticle were described. The relationship between some of the morphologie characteristics of this mite and its pathogenicity are briefly discussed.
